Hackettstown Rotary Club Lauds Centenary University Professor
Linda Poisseroux, Ph.D., of Mount Olive is recognized as a Paul Harris Fellow for her contributions in supporting the organization’s mission
HACKETTSTOWN, N.J., Nov. 9, 2020—The Hackettstown Rotary Club has recognized Centenary University professor Linda Poisseroux, Ph.D., as a Paul Harris Fellow, an honor reserved for members who have made significant progress in upholding the mission of the organization. The recognition is named for the Rotary founder, a Chicago attorney who envisioned a place where local professionals of diverse backgrounds could exchange ideas and form meaningful, long-term friendships.
A resident of Mount Olive, Dr. Poisseroux was inducted into the Hackettstown Rotary Club two years ago. She said, “It is truly an honor to be recognized as a Paul Harris Fellow recipient. I feel extremely fortunate to work with such dedicated and amazing people. Our Hackettstown Rotary Club members genuinely care about the community, the people, and for each other. They willingly give so much and exceedingly commit themselves to Rotary’s principle of ‘service above self.’”
Dr. Poisseroux is an assistant professor of business and director of Enactus, Centenary University’s competitive business team. A social entrepreneurship organization, Enactus strives to increase the livelihoods and economic success of businesses, local communities, and the world. Under her direction, the team has placed in regional, national, and international competitions. At this year’s Enactus National Exposition, held virtually due to the pandemic, several members of the Centenary Enactus team earned national recognition. Dr. Poisseroux earned a master’s degree from Montclair State University and a doctoral degree from Capella University.
